Our berry picking excursion!!!! la la la

A couple of weekends ago we had a really great experience, and I'm just now getting around to blogging about it. whew!!!! A guy that Jack works with showed us where the motherload of raspberry bushes are up on the rim, and we spent all morning picking berries. I have never actually picked WILD berries before, and it was a blast. The coolest thing, though, was watching Max. He fell asleep in the car on the way up there, then when he woke up, he realized that he was in the woods. Now, if you didn't already know this, Max is really really really an outside boy, and he started stomping around, swinging his arms (hiking stance I guess) with his red boots on. Then he realized what daddy was doing and he started helping us pick berries. At first he just mushed them in his newly purple fingers, but then he finally tried one. "Yummmm!" he said, and I agreed with him later on in the day when I ate some on my vanilla ice cream!
